National Theatre Live - the finest productions, the greatest writers, directors and actors, broadcast live from The National and elsewhere.  It's a unique theatre experience which gets you so close to the action you can almost feel the actors' spit on your face - at a fraction of the price of the real thing, too.   Complete with backstage tours, interviews with the principals and additional insight in to the process of bringing you the show.  

We have allocated seating, just like in the West End!  Prices are £17, or £15 to Lexi members.  You can even choose to sit in the Lexi Dress Circle, aka our balcony box.

Please arrive by 6:45, which is when the NT Live extra content begins.  We hope that everyone will have drink in hand and be seated by 7:00, when the live performance starts.

The return of a figure from the past brings long buried truths to the surface, and the price of their American Dream is laid bare.
